TL;DR --
ENTP's have the second lowest in both education, and household income, according to the chart. While INFP's earn less overall, they have a much higher education. While ISFP's have very little education in comparison, they earn much more than ENTP's

In contrast, ENTJ's are highest in both.

All in all, I want to see sources.

Although ENTPs had the lowest GPAs other than ESTPs
... second lowest? ... o_O, that's kind of. shocking (?) I guess. Is it not meant to be? Do most ENTPs out there really not give a damn about their GPAs? I'm checking that source out.

Below average on everything except art and science, in which cases we were just average.

But, in terms of understanding, I think we're all exceptional.

The interesting thing is in the 2.5 years I plowed through my bachelor's degree I graduated with honors and now I make double what pretty much anyone I know does. Maybe I'm an outlier in the whole situation. I definitely could see an ENTP doing a boom or bust. Basically too lost in their ideas to actually do anything so has a life of low pay. On the other end, if an idea takes off, it becomes insanely successful.

Yeah, can kind of relate to that. My current gpa's 3.9 and all throughout high school was a straight A (occasional B) student. Never really slipped beyond that.
I think it's a pretty boom or bust thing. The results are either great or notably lacking. But I think if most ENTPs actually took the time and tried to do well in studies, they would have absolutely no problem. Yet alas

IMO being an ENTP is a sink or swim. If you can find the right career path/educational major you might end up on top of it like Feyman, but once you fall into something you're not fit in, it would be a hard fall. The sad thing is by looking at the picture, statistically we would be end up at the wrong place.

Second from the bottom for educational level attained? You wouldn't know it from the roster of presenters at TED and other such symposia. Might as well call it The ENTP Show.
